Welcome to Spokane, 2009 Iron Butt Rally Riders!
I got a notice from Catfish that he was safe at the final checkpoint.
After reading some of the latest news about other participants and the unfortunate events that befell some of them, I just want to say…
Thank God, Allah, Yahweh, the guy on the Hale-Bopp Comet and whomever else I left out that Tom made it through this undertaking safely. With the countless hours put in, the sleepy eyes, the sweltering heat he made it. Rain, fog, dark of night, he’s through to the other side. No major mechanical failures, no accidents, no flats or blowouts. Amazing!
I don’t know his point status, but I don’t really give a shit. As far as I am concerned he made it. He completed the Iron Butt Rally, rode the ride, picked up points and cruised in to the Final checkpoint.
I’ve said it 100 times already so one more for the road… I AM SO PROUD OF HIM!
